How to size your head for a riding helmet
Using a soft fabric measuring tape, wrap it around the widest part of your head (over your hair).
It should follow a line about 3/4 inch above your eyebrows, just above the ear line and around the bump at the back of your head.
Take the measurement in centimetres (cm) and repeat a couple of times for the most accurate sizing.
Unlike most other helmet brands which rely on adjustable or broad size ranges (small/medium/large), Charles Owen sizing is very specific because that ensures the safest and most comfortable fit.
Use the size chart table below to convert your head size into a standard riding hat or jockey skull cap size.
|HEAD SIZE (CM)||HELMET SIZE||SKULL CAP SIZE|
|50||6 1/8||000 1/2|
|52||6 3/8||00 1/2|
|54||6 5/8||0 1/2|
|56||6 7/8||1 1/2|
|58||7 1/8||2 1/2|
|60||7 3/8||3 1/2|
|62||7 5/8||4 1/2|
|64||7 7/8||5 1/2|
If you are between two sizes, round up to the larger size, or ideally try on helmets in both to determine which one gives the most snug fitting.
